Are PXG Golf Clubs Worth The Money?

Parsons Xtreme Golf were founded in 2014 by Bob Parsons, an American billionaire with an estimated net worth of $2.6bn.

Parsons claimed to have spent around $350,000 a year on golf equipment and was unsatisfied with it, so started his own company.

He initially employed Ping's Senior Product Designer Mike Nicolette as well as Ping's Director of Engineering Brad Schweigert and gave them no time or financial constraints.

The mission was simple - make the best clubs possible.

Since then, they've signed up Tour Players like Charl Schwartzel, Zach Johnson, Pat Perez, Lydia Ko, Christie Kerr, James Hahn and Ryan Moore.
